We went to Limbang in September and visited my brother's farm. While standing around the potted plant, Joshua suddenly noticed a tail of something and with lightning speed, he grabbed the tail and pull the creature up. He just got hold of a green tree lizard.
The tail is very long...
This fella stayed in this position long enough for me to snap a few pictures before it battled with Joshua for freedom. As the tail is thin and strong, it slipped out of Joshua's fingers before it was imprison as pet!
In the good old days, we had plenty of these lizards in our pepper garden. My brother called this "seven steps lizard", ie, if you are bitten by one of these, you will die before walking seven steps! But we knew that this is probably untrue.
Joshua is really brave! When I was young like him, I remember pulling the tail of a little snake with head and most of the body still in a hole. Somehow, I couldn't pull the snake out of the hole. Thanks God for that.
